Fresh Spring Salad
If you’ve never had salad turnips you are in for a treat. Nothing like winter turnips used in stew, 0these are sweet and tender – perfect to eat raw or lightly cooked, if you must. The beauty of this salad is that you can make up the quantities and balance of the veggies, as you wish – swap the baby greens for your favourite lettuce, and the nuts and dried fruit with whatever you have on hand. Same goes for the dressing: no vinegar? Substitute with more orange – or lemon or grapefruit – juice. Taste, experiment…enjoy!
- Whisk the dressing together, pour half over the apple and veggies, and set aside for a few minutes while you wash and dry the greens.
- Pile the greens high in a large bowl, then top with the dressed veggies.
- Drizzle over the remaining dressing, and garnish.
